Marina Baie des Anges

The Marina Baie Des Anges comprises four apartment buildings up to 70 meters high, which look out over the Baie des Anges in Villeneuve Loubet, between Cannes and Nice.

The construction of Marina Baie des Anges began in 1968 and spanned almost 25 years. The buildings took up position on the seafront instead of a vast wasteland used as a camping area at the time with the idea of transform it into a very private luxury real estate complex. However, the direct surroundings of Marina Baie des Anges are in no way comparable to those of Cannes, Nice or Antibes - even going back almost fifty years.

The project, approved in advance by the Board of Governors of architecture and town-planning now benefits from a listing as “20th century heritage”. The four waves represented by buildings of Marina Baie des Anges aroused many objections before fully integrating into the local landscape. The four buildings were at the time a unique project by its gigantism but also a visual barrier on the sea.

While the project was a resounding success from its inception, the three first buildings were sold, built and delivered between 1972 and 1976, the last of them was not completed until 1993. Today, Marina Baie des Anges is an emblematic figure of the French Riviera, and an ideal place for those considering a rental on the French Riviera. The complex, facing the Mediterranean, has a swimming pool, a Thalassotherapy centre and fitness centres.

The Marina capable can accommodate pleasure boats up to 35 meters long. The apartments on the top floor command a high price - around 1.5 million euros for a 130 square metre apartment.
